M2 EQUITYBITES-September 6, 2017-EFTA and AFT Announce Partnership Benefiting Members


The Electronic Funds Transfer Association (EFTA), which promotes electronic payments and commerce through responsible federal government relations and member education, has announced a formal partnership with the Association for Financial Technology (AFT), the company said.

This new relationship will enable members of both associations to share information and potentially collaborate on a range of issues including electronic payments and commerce, credit, debit & prepaid technology, cybersecurity, data privacy, mobile payments and how legislative and regulatory initiatives may impact them.

As part of the partnership, AFT will have a representative attend monthly legislative and regulatory calls conducted by the EFTA, which will provide insight into how the government impacts the financial services industry. It also provides AFT with a direct link to a government relations organization with a deep understanding of how federal and state legislators and government agencies play a role in the industry. Additional benefits include cross-promotion between associations, discounts on events and networking opportunities.

Association for Financial Technology (AFT) is industry's premier resource for networking and professional development for those companies and executives serving US financial institutions (FI's), including banks, credit unions, lenders and payment companies. Founded in 1972, the members represent virtually every area of technology, data or services needed to help FI's succeed in today's dynamic marketplace.

The Electronic Funds Transfer Association (EFTA) is a non-profit trade association dedicated to the advancement of electronic payments and electronic commerce. EFTA's nearly 300 members include the nation's financial institutions, ATM owners, networks and manufacturers, payment processors, card companies, software companies, state governments and technology services providers. For 40 years it has informed debate over the consumer, business and policy implications of new and existing payments technology. EFTA accomplishes this through public outreach to Congress, the administrative agencies, regulators, consumers and the media. For more information, visit
